Great sewing tutorials for new sewers

Monday, 9 July 2012  |  Nicole

We are always coming across great tutorials
and love to share them with our customers!

If you are on Pinterest then check out our Sewing Ideas board for our latest finds!

In this post we wanted to focus on the newbie sewer. You might have just bought your first sewing machine or are considering diving into the world of sewing! Getting started can sometimes feel a little daunting but once you get the hang of it you’ll be itching to make more!

Here are some of our favourite tutorials for new sewers.

Hair bows

How cute are these little hair bows?

We think they’d work really well in a bright vibrant coloured fabric such as vintage summer by Little Yellow Bicycle!

Bunting tea towels

Summer might be nearly over but these adorable bunting tea towels will keep a bit of that summer feeling in your kitchen.

Scrap fabric tree cushion cover

This scrap fabric tree cushion cover is a great little project if you are new to sewing. It will teach you several useful techniques including applique and give you a great sense of satisfaction once it’s finished!


Fabric coasters

Get to grips with sewing straight lines and curve with this tutorial on how to make a set of fabric coasters:

Fox cushion

If you are feeling a bit more adventurous then why not try out this plushy fox? Isn’t he cute?
